Remote desktop certificate requires SubjectAltName with a .local domain extension

I have a Remote Desktop environment running Server 2012 that requires a certificate with a 'server.mydomain'.local extension.  What would be the best practice for eliminating the server name in the certificate file?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I know that some issuers, GoDaddy, for instance, will no longer issue certificates with ".local" as a TLD for the FQDN.

So what are you trying to achieve? Do you want to have a certificate that include the .local name? Are you looking for a wildcard certificate - which usually costs more?

ARe you looking for an internal certificate or external certificate. Internal certificate can be created by deploying AD CS role.

I had a personal cert issued by our external CA.  This resolved the issue.
